Seven Level Hybrid Neutral Point Flying Capacitor Multilevel Inverter

D Parvathi Devi, K Anil Kumar


This work proposes another seven-level hybrid topology joining components of neutral point braced and flying capacitor inverters. The proposed topology gives a tradeoff between various part checks to accomplish a decent loss dissemination, evade coordinate arrangement association of semiconductor gadgets, keep the adjusted operation of dc-connection capacitors while keeping the quantity of expensive segments, for example, capacitors and switches low. The required balance methodology is created and the operation of the proposed topology is contemplated. The elements of the proposed topology are examined and contrasted with other accessible topologies. Reenactment results are given to check the execution of the converter for medium voltage applications. Recreation comes about check through MATLAB/SIMULINK condition.
